quote: but I find it funny that a lot of Americans are essentially rooting against an American company in favor of the foreign rivals
quote: It's not about the phone. Apple as a company has spent the last several years suing the crap out of almost every company it competes with. It may create some beautiful things, but it has an public image problem
quote: The reason iOS is growing more rapidly may be due to three factors:Broader distribution with three out of four major operators carrying the phoneAvailability of three product variants with $0 starting prices.Increasing awareness and use of apps and content ecosystems due to network effects.As distribution is about to increase with T-Mobile being added to the carrier list the growth in iOS share is likely to continue even as the market expands.
quote: So, I am confused... Market share matters or not?
quote: It is a nice chart of Apple sales in one region, the quarter of a yearly product refresh.
quote: If you are looking at marketshare, let me help you... Its still 5 to 1 in favor of Android.
quote: Now, look at all the great 1080p phones that are coming out this quarter while Apple still has the tiny little low res, non HD, feature weak iPhone5.
quote: The HUGE list of missing features on IOS is soemthing that should make any visitor to a tech site like this cringe.
quote: You are a real piece of work aren't you? You come into an article about Samsung, to post your usual pro Apple rhetoric as you do in all articles about all companies that compete with Apple. I post against your one-sided nonsense of skewed partial data... You as always go back to the financial end of it, I again remind you this isn't a financial site its a tech site and you act as if all I am doing here is defending my own purchase? Here is a hint for you. I haven't purchased a phone in a long time. Mine is 100% free, any phone I want, once a year or so through my work. Unlike you, I am not here to champion a company. I post against your drivel to insure no one comes in and actually reads your nonsense and makes a bad choice. That is all. I am the Batman to your joker (I post on behalf of tech, you post on behalf of an asshole of a company) That and the old "Someone on the internet is wrong" thing that you posted a while back. That is why I am here, and that is why I dont let you get away with your spin. You wanna call me out? call me out for what I am doing as I do to you.

quote: You dont need alot from your phone, other than apps. It works for you and that is good. I require more from my phone, I need it to be more dynamic and to do more.
